Compact Paper Soap Pod

This whole “no-liquids-on-the-plane” thing has really put a kink in my packing procedures. I used to be an all carry-on, all the time, type of girl. If I couldn’t carry it with me, I probably didn’t need it…and packing all my toiletries in a ziplock baggie to show everyone in line at security leaves me a little non-plussed. Anyway, I like the idea of this paper soap. Each little compact comes with 50 wafer thin soap leaves which disolve with a little water.

Urban Cup Holder

It’s not often that a product forays into uncharted territory- yet that’s what this does for the urban setting. Claim that post for your own, I say.

“The aim of the urban cup holder is to encourage people to reinterpret street settings and claim them as their territory, instead of just using them as a means of passage from A to B. The cup holder is easily clamped with one hand to posts in the street, then used as a coat/bag/umbrella hanger and a drink holder. In turn, giving the user a feeling of control and creating a more personal space, a temporary territory.”

The Story Behind the Bookmark by Tokuda + Komiya

Sure, you could use any scrap of paper for a bookmark, but these are much more interesting and humorous. This could also be a thoughtful little gift for a book lover.

“A bookmark and its story, which are reminiscent of foreign picture books of the past-scary and unreal, yet fascinating all at the same time. The action of the bookmark being sandwiched between the pages of a book tells a story in itself. It is a bookmark that is caught between the real world and a fictional world. A lonely mermaid. A silly goose. A word thief.”
